CLAP HANDS

PEOPLE CLAP HANDS 

 

FIRST THE GIRLS 

THEN THE BOYS  

HANDS TOGETHER 

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE  

 

CLAP HANDS

PEOPLE CLAP HANDS  

 

THE TREES SWAY LIKE ELEPHANTS 

THE LEAVES ARE A WHISPER  

THE SEA ROLLS ONTO THE BEACH 

AND KISSES HER  

NOW THE SUN IS SHINING, 

NOW THE FLOWERS BLOOM  

CLOUDS PART FOR A SHAFT OF LIGHT 

AND GOD IS IN THE ROOM  

 

CLAP HANDS

PEOPLE CLAP HANDS  

 

AN ANTIDOTE FOR HEARTBREAK 

I LEARNED A COMMON CODE  

BETWEEN DEVOUT AND FAITHLESS, 

BETWEEN THE YOUNG AND OLD  

OUT IN THE WILDERNESS 

ENEMIES ARE FRIENDS  

ANIMALS ARE AGELESS 

THE MUSIC NEVER ENDS  

 

CLAP HANDS

PEOPLE CLAP HANDS  

 

SOLDIER'S HOME 

BECAUSE THE WAR IS OVER  

CHILD STRETCHES OUT HER ARMS 

AND HE PUTS HER ON HIS SHOULDER  

TAKES A CHANCE AND SMILES 

AT A DANCING GIRL  

AND THE CROWD GOES WILD 

IT GOES AROUND THE WORLD  

 

CLAP HANDS
